Kuroo 4 Port

Kuroo has been ported to KDE4/Qt4 APIs, the port has some rough edges because Kuroo is such a complex application, but it works well for most basic system management purposes. For people just looking to run Kuroo, an unstable x86 and amd64 ebuild is now in the portage tree. Just unmask and emerge:

  1. echo 'app-portage/kuroo4 ~amd64' >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
  2. emerge kuroo4

Also, a live ebuild was created in the gentoo-guis overlay if you'd like to follow development more closely. To use it, add the overlay with 'layman -a gentoo-guis', if you have don't have layman installed, install it first with 'emerge layman'. Because it is a live ebuild it has no keywords, so you'll have to add it to your package.keywords file with a command like 'echo app-portage/kuroo4 ** >> /etc/portage/package.keywords'. Finally install kuroo with 'emerge kuroo4'.

Steps in nice list format:

  1. emerge layman
  2. layman -a gentoo-guis
  3. echo 'app-portage/kuroo4 **' >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
  4. emerge kuroo4

For developers, the source tree starts at svnroot/kuroo/kuroo4/trunk. There's a kuroo.kdev4 project file for KDevelop 4 which is available in portage as dev-util/kdevelop. The Getting Started 4 page has more information about setting up a development environment for Kuroo 4

Kuroo 3

If you're still on KDE3 and want to run Kuroo to manage your Gentoo system, there is an ebuild in the kde-sunset overlay for kuroo that depends on KDE 3.5. If you have don't have layman installed, install it first with 'emerge layman' then add the overlay with 'layman -a kde-sunset'. Finally install kuroo with 'emerge kuroo'. Kuroo is keyworded with ~amd64 ~ppc ~sparc ~x86 (only x86 has been tested), so if you are using stable packages only you'll have to add it to your package.keywords file with a command like 'echo app-portage/kuroo ~x86 >> /etc/portage/package.keywords'.

  1. emerge layman
  2. layman -a kde-sunset
  3. echo 'app-portage/kuroo ~x86' >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
  4. emerge kuroo

Currently we have a Getting Started 3 page to help people to get up and running with a development environment for Kuroo 3.

Kuroo 4 Rewrite

In 2009, facconeau took on a project to rewrite kuroo from scratch instead of trying to port from KDE3 to KDE4. Kuroo has been rewritten to be much simpler and easier to maintain, but it's still a long way away from being complete. This source tree starts at svnroot/kuroo_rewrite/trunk though I'm not exactly sure how to get it compiling and running. Package and history browsing is now supported.

This wiki would be open to the public to contribute in any way they see fit, but so far we have not been able to get the setting correct.
